The Lighthouse in Glasgow was designed by Rennie Mackintosh as the HQ for the Glasgow Herald newspaper. It is now a Centre for Design and Architecture.
Although I’vevisited The Lighthouse many times to see art exhibitions. I hadn’t climbed the former Water Tower . I was really glad that I finally got around to doing it.
As you ascend the helical staircase, there are drawings of the building’s design.
I must admit that I did feel a bit out of breath by the time I reached the viewing platform. I was fortunate to have the place to myself.
If you’re in Glasgow, I recommend a trek up the former Water Tower at The Lighthouse for some good views over the city.
